Hi, I'm a little confused about the counting for the one minute changes.

I think we're changing triads in the following way: low fret, middle fret, high fret, middle fret, low fret. 

So that's five chords for one complete cycle of the count.  Yes?

I've been playing more lately and what I noticed was that I hear this light, screeching sound when I change my chord (and not just the barre chords). I tend to maintain a soft touch on the strings as I move so as not to be lost in finding the new chords. Do I have to redo my technique or is this natural?

And I put this question here because it's the first one that involves the screeching thing, in order of the lesson index in beginner and intermediate courses.

Wow, not much activity here. I was going to ask how many cycles per minute Justin thought was a good target but...

@sophiehiker: yes.

@Vndt (thought I fear you're long gone): sounds like that's just your fingers brushing against the strings. As long as it's not overwhelming then don't worry about it. Different kinds of strings (such as coated vs. uncoated) will do that more or less than others.

What would be the number of changes per minute that I should aim for?
